Fast forwarding through the first couple of years- In 2006, just 4 months shy of my 30th Birthday , I became a mother to a wonderful boy who we named Alexander. Life became more challenging ,but better. Motherhood made me better lifeguard. How so? There was this new world before me- new understandings, new challenges, a mother always looks at the world different than anyone else. It thought me to be an example, to lead, to love more, to share my time, to be patient, more caring. I incorporated all of that into my skills on the beach and I started seeing positive results. With the time, I wanted to contribute to Ocean Rescue in a different way. I have gathered considerable amount of time and skills as a lifeguard and in 2014 I was promoted to a supervisor after taking promotional exam. I entered new field- managing employees. There are plenty of challenges to that but my passion was still on.
